The 2018 Infiniti Q60 is a luxury coupe with a one-two knockout: the devastating form and wild performance in the higher versions.
We are split on the nose (especially the pinched metal) but we are more than sold on the rest of the car. At the front, the hockey stick chrome surrounds the dual-time fog lights like square jaws that pronounce the Q60 in a way that its predecessors could not. The best shots of the coupe are reserved for the sides, according to us. It’s a traditional coupe shape, but better done by more glass and a folded rear roof pillar that doubles up on itself. And in case you regret it: Infiniti has chromed it. The back is a short trunk lid punctuated by a lip spoiler that overlooks the Infiniti badge. At the bottom, the only right angles of the car are on the lower part of the fairing, which helps the large rear tires appear wider on the road and the small side double exhausts are equipped with a satin chrome in the top models Red Sport range.
Inside, the Q60 looks better dressed in white (it’s even acceptable after Labor Day) that helps make the cabin look bigger than it actually is. The Infiniti Q60 axle has not yet tested, but the Q50 sedan on which it relies Good’s rating in four of the IIHS crash ratings and Superior’s top rating for collision avoidance before (thanks to the Forward Emergency Braking system also available on the Q60). The Q60 should behave well if ever crash-tested. The driver assistance safety features can be found in the ProAssist pack or the ProActive pack and include blind spot warning, blind spot intervention, adaptive cruise control, emergency response with traffic alert. transverse rear, front collision warning, emergency braking lane departure warning, and lane departure prevention with active lane control.
